Accor is expanding its presence in the Philippines with the signing of two new properties in Clark, opening in 2025.
The dual site agreement with Hann Resorts will take the well-established partnership to six hotels in the city.
Located within the Hann Lux luxury integrated resort the two new hotels will be called Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark. Sofitel Clark will comprise 300 guestrooms while the Emblems Clark will feature 200 guestrooms.
Both will feature all-day dining and speciality restaurants, as well as swimming pools, spas, fitness centres, meetings and conferencing spaces, and executive lounges.
Garth Simmons, CEO, Accor, Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea, said: “We are proud to expand our strategic relationship with Hann in this landmark multi-agreement signing. This reaffirms the trust and confidence owners place in Accor, our relationship driven-approach towards partners, and the popularity of our brands powered by strong distribution and lifestyle loyalty platforms. We are also thrilled and extremely proud to introduce two very special properties to vibrant Clark. Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark will both bring an iconic sense of luxury to Hann Lux, and we are delighted to be working with our valued partners, Hann Philippines, to bring their unique vision to life.”
Daesik Han, chairman and CEO, Hann Philippines Inc (HPI) added: “We are excited to expand our partnership further with Accor, a global leader in the hospitality industry. Having Sofitel Clark and Emblems Clark in Hann Lux will surely make it a celebrated destination, attracting tourists not only from all over the Philippines but also from around the world.”
In 2019, Accor and Hann signed multi-agreements for Banyan Tree Clark, Angsana Clark, Mercure Clark and Swissôtel Clark. The first phase of Swissôtel Clark launched in February 2022, with the broader hotel complex set to debut later this year, featuring 372 rooms and five vibrant restaurants and bars.
Accor currently has 10 hotels in operation in the Philippines across three regions and a pipeline of 14 committed projects across the country, including the 195-room Sofitel Cebu City, the 200-key Pullman Manila at Primex Tower and the imminent Pullman Davao.
The Sofitel family today counts over 120 hotels across 47 countries with more than 20 hotels in the pipeline, while the recently launched luxury Emblems Collection has a target of 60 openings around the world by 2030.
